NOISY OFFERING: for the month of December will go to Paper Pantry. The Paper Pantry has helped so many in our community. The people are so thankful for the items that we can give them. We always need donations. And we can always use extra help. If you would like to help, call Bev Engel at 248-672-9449.
This month we have received many donations from Bay Area Pet Resort, ZONTA, Women’s Auxiliary of the Petoskey Eagles 2462, Kilwins, and financial donations from friends and families from the community.
ALTAR FLOWERS this morning are in honor of the birthday of Monroe Lane-Olsen, given by Tom and Kris Olsen. Birthday Blessings, Monroe.
BULLETINS this month are given by Cyndi Yingling..
MARK THE CALENDAR: When using the church building for meetings etc. please mark the day and time on the calendar, on the bulletin board by the women’s bathroom, so a reminder can be put in the announcements. It is important for the office to have this information.

COOKIE WALK: THANK YOU for bakers, buyers, volunteers, set up people and clean up people!!! All proceeds are going to the Youth Camp Fund and raised over $700!

REMEMBER OUR SERVICE PEOPLE: With the holidays just around the corner it would be nice to remember our members who are in the service and might not be able to come home. I’m sure they would love to get a card or a note telling them they’re thought of.
